History Timeline

As pioneers of Entertainment-Education, a powerful tool for Social and Behavioral Change Communication (SBCC), our commitment to partnership and inclusion set us apart. Since our founding in 1985, we’ve worked with communities to amplify local voices, produced media that resonates with impacted populations, and have provided space for the conversations that encourage social change. Secure in our role as storytellers, we are working now in 59 languages and in 67 countries around the globe. The future is full of possibilities.
